O'beah, the name given to an ancient black magic practitioner, is awoken within Nadia when harassed one too many times by regular customer Andre to perform a private dance.
The channel to O'beah’s magic manifests within the patterns of traditional West African cloths. This is explored rhythmically & dynamically through animation of evocative fabric prints.Once activated, the power of O'beah leaves only the mark of death.
